Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
The EPA is taking final action to approve revisions to Washington's State Implementation Plan (SIP) submitted by the Washington State Department of Ecology on February 4, 2005 and August 2, 2006. The submissions contain revisions to the Puget Sound Clean Air Agency (PSCAA) regulations approved by the PSCAA Board in 2003, 2004, and 2005. These revisions relate primarily to control measures for limiting volatile organic compounds (VOC) emissions. On July 16, 2013, the EPA proposed to approve these revisions into Washington's SIP. The EPA is taking final action to approve these revisions because they satisfy the requirements of the Clean Air Act (CAA).
